Pale yellow. Flinty, firm, 'mineral' citrus oil, petrol. Bracing acid, slightly bitter/phenolic, feels very fresh for a 6 year old wine.
Paired w Singapore spiced Mahi Mahi.
If you don't know these dry Riesling wines from Australia 🇦🇺 now is a good time to buy and support them through their crazy wildfire season. #ozwine #riesling #dryasthedesert — 13 days ago
Tangerine honey, grapefruit sugar, with peonies, the most perfect, spun cotton candy, chamomile, pear and apple and almond and hazelnut, chutney, and toast with a nano marmalade containing frozen peaches. The exquisite peach blossom honey, chamomile, sultanas, elderberry, gooseberry, quince, dried starfruit and lime. Incredibly layered in folds of dried and concentrated richness. #riesling #deutschewein #wein #beerenauslese #dessertwine #botrytis — 2 months ago
Notes of dried orange peel, apricot marmalade, mango sorbet, honeycomb, honeysuckle, cherry blossom, stargazer lily, and peonies; smooth, and rich mouthfeel with a long finish. Definitely on the sweeter side. But wonderfully paired with a spicy Thai coconut soup and I suspect a versatile option for a myriad of spice- or heat-oriented dishes. Also could pair well with a dessert such as meringue, fresh raspberries, and sorbet...Vintage 2017. ABV 7.5%.

Little touch of lemon curd, subtle citrus aromas, some yeasty notes. Just slightly off-dry style with some sweetness in the background but plenty of juicy acidity. It’s a delicious wine that pairs well with moderately spiced Indian food. #riesling — 4 months ago
Vintage 2016 / I had a bad luck day. So I needed a comforting and unpretentious wine. This is. Lemon in smell and taste. Drink it young, the winegrower told me. And he is right... totally different from Spätlese in eg Mosel that needs time. #ahr #riesling paired it with a duck rilettes and schnitzel, red cabbage and baked potatoes. — a year ago
Straw hue. Nose of white flowers and orchard fruit. Fresh pear, apple, peach, and cantaloupe, honeysuckle, white lilies, honey, and wet stone on the palate. Dry. Vintage 2017. ABV 13%. Works well with the spiciness and heat of the chili. Spent considerable time thinking about what best to pair with chili, from a wine perspective. Glad we chose this one, but second choice was to pair with a Southern Rhône, Grenache-based blend, which leads me to this question: what wine do you think best complements chili or a red-meat dish with Mexican spices? So curious as to what others have tried and liked. #riesling #alsace #alsacegrandcru #schlossberg #annekriesling — a month ago
The “iron fist/velvet glove” of dry Riesling. All the great Rheingau stuff, wrapped in a package of near-GG texture and laser beam structure. Long, haunting, evocative finish. This is the kind of white wine that easily pairs with a boar chop, perfectly roasted rare venison loin or fallow deer. Special. #peterjakobkühn #rheingau #riesling — a year ago
